Orientation of New Employees Regarding Company Policies & Procedures
One of the most important functions of the human resources staff is to provide new employees with a warm welcome, accurate information about the company and their new employer's policies. Doris Sims, a Texas-based human resources development consultant and author of "Creative New Employee Orientation Programs," says, "More companies are starting to recognize the importance and value of this first-impression program." Some people find starting a new job to be stressful. However, a human resources department with a good orientation program can ensure a smooth transition into the employee’s new job.
